My Sunday Photo 2018 – Going To London To See Tully With Channel Mum

This week has been a very odd one hasn’t it?! We’ve had extreme rain followed by a glorious weekend. I spent Thursday doing something completely out of my comfort zone. I went to London by myself to meet the Channel Mum team for a private screening of Tully. I was so nervous beforehand. Travelling by myself, meeting new people, meeting …

How to Keep Kids Entertained This Summer

With longer days, and higher temperatures outside it’s about time your family start sketching first summer plans. The capital is an obvious choice if you want to inspire your kids and leave them with plenty of new memories.

Family Day Out To Chessington In Pictures

I have wrote about adventures to Chessington World Of Adventures twice before; our first experience was of their Howl-oween event three years ago now, and the second time was last year for the opening of the new Gruffalo River Ride which had replaced the much loved Bubbleworks.

It can be tricky to balance the daily running of your home and plan a family break at the same time.

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Hating On The Snow This Weekend

On Friday we experienced a short lived snippet of what the spring and summer will look like for my family. It was warm enough to sit outside with no coats on. Yet this weekend we have been graced with more snow. Usually I’d be jumping for joy about the white flakes falling from the sky. Willing it, pleading it to …

Is It Lucky To Have Child Free Time?

I hear it so often when I tell people I’m child free and that we get to have this once a month for an entire weekend. “You’re so lucky!” But is it luck really? And is that luck mine or the kids? If you are new to my blog, I am a mum of three girls. I had my first …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – My Valentine

Valentines Day is like marmite; you either love it or you hate it. Which one are you? I have always felt it is a heavily commercialised day of celebration. I don’t believe you should need a specific day to show how much somebody means to you. We don’t buy gifts for each other, in fact I have been known to …

I’m Featured On Blogger Love

This year I want to dip my toe in the world of creating content for other blogs and not just my own. I have seen many other bloggers do this but have always been scared to approach anyone in case I wasn’t that interesting or my writing wasn’t good enough. Then I saw a fellow blogger, Emma from Em’s World, …

Special Needs Diary #13 – A Long Needed Update On Our Autism Journey

It’s been nearly a whole year since I last updated or spoke properly about P1’s special needs. It has been such an exhausting year but I think that we are heading in the right direction finally.

#BLOGMAS Day 20 – Santa’s Grotto At Coolings Nature Trail

I didn’t think that my little family had many traditions. Things that we do each year especially around Christmas time. But it turns out that we do have some. One of those is the Santa’s grotto at the Green & Pleasant Nature Trail near our home. It’s actually my mother in law who books this grotto for the girls. It’s …

“Mummy! Milky”

I hear the words “Mummy! Milky” day in and day out. It’s a 24/7 occurrence and it comes out of two of my three darling daughters mouths. I honestly feel like I’m going crazily insane about it. It’s controlling nearly every breath I take and I am so tired. I’ll start with P2 seeing as that issue has been the …
